Emoni Bates has committed to the University of Memphis as part of the incoming class of 2021.
Bates originally committed to Michigan State last summer before reopening his recruitment in April.
Bates had been ranked as the No. 1 player in the 2022 class since he first emerged on the recruiting scene early in his high school career, but he had an inconsistent junior season at Ypsi Prep (Michigan).
Bates and Jalen Duren are two of the four ESPN 100 prospects to commit to Memphis in the 2021 class.
Bates doesn't turn 18 until January, so he is too young to enter the 2022 NBA draft.
